Chainsaw Man is on the horizon at long last, and the anime's hype is drumming up all sorts of conversations. After all, the series is one of this year's biggest releases, and its current success lies with its manga. After all, Tatsuki Fujimoto's series is one of the best-selling in manga right now, and sales will skyrocket soon thanks to a major award win.
If you did not hear, Chainsaw Man brought home another Harvey Award for its 2022 season. Fujimoto's manga was awarded Best Manga, after all. This is the second Harvey Award given to Chainsaw Man as it won Best Manga in 2021. And earlier this year, Fujimoto's series was nominated for an Eisner Award at San Diego Comic-Con.
Of course, the Harvey Awards are prestigious for any artist, and Fujimoto admits he's reeling for winning one let alone two. In a statement released after his latest win, the artist said his awards could easily devalue the Harvey Awards as a whole if he keeps winning.
"If Chainsaw Man receives this award too often, I'm afraid it'll lower the prestige of the Harveys. But really I'm so happy. And Now I want to make it third," Fujimoto wrote.
